Are you one of those people who can't stand stories with lots of character development?
Are you tired of books with plots?
Do you want to start right from the beginning with a fight scene and have it not end?
Then this is the book for you.
Each story starts with an explanation of Koban and the people or animals who live there. You get told how they are enhanced, what abilities they have and why. Then to prove they have all these abilities, you get a hour long fight scene and then its over. This is a perfect example of story number one.
Story number two, you get a biology lesson of Koban, a very long lesson and then just like watching Wild Kingdom, you get to hear about an enhanced bat going out to get dinner.
I thought story three was going to have some character development. I gave up on the chance of a plot. Then this enhanced genius four year old stars planning a hunting trip. We get a detail by detail explanation of his plan to escape his house and go hunting. I can't remember if he used a Philips screwdriver or a standard, but I am sure we were told.
I am not sure about the narrator's abilities, this did not lend itself to him being able to showcase his talents. I know some people say they like a certain narrator so much they could listen to him read a phone book, well this is as close as it gets.

reading the names of the people and places vs. my thoughts of how they would sound
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Koban -- The Missing Chapters - Part I
Any additional comments?
Wish the chapters were named, got the audio book for my ten year old (vision impaired-deaf -- cochlear implants) to listen to so he would know a little of what grandpa was reading Kiddie Cappers some of the material not suitable for that age.... and we could make up some stories about what he thought children and rippers can do.
